Hey Mastodon! I'm always looking for new peeps to follow!
Introduce yourself (or someone else!), let's make friends. :)
ethical quandary, thoughts welcome Show more
What are the ethics behind buying bad people's works second-hand?
One could argue it's ok because you aren't paying the bad creator, but it seems wrong to tie your system of ethics to money.
Alternatively, one could argue that the work is ethically "tainted" and should not be consumed, but that seems too strong sometimes.
I feel like "creator vs. creation" and "don't support bad people" come to a head when we're talking second-hand sales.
What do you think?
i need to buy more ram. 16 GB is not enough for my 3-4 IntelliJ Platform IDEs and Chrome
Love it when the bug you've been struggling to find for over a week is caused by a single character...
Wow, it's been a while, Mastodon. Sorry for leaving unannounced for like 2 whole months (!!)
Anyway, I'm gonna try to be active and engage with the Mastodon community again.
So, to start, what did I miss? What's the coolest/most interesting/best thing you did since thanksgiving?
For this week's blog post, I did a color scheme analysis of Adventure Time's title cards: https://jonstoler.me/blog/adventure-time-color-analysis-part-1
Next week I'll be doing a similar analysis for the frames of the episodes themselves!
Also it's helpful if you, like, forget to turn your screen off when you go to bed or whatever.
I normally have it set up, but I recently updated my phone and haven't copied my keys over yet. :(
Okay, yes I did.
To be precise, I only crashed the display service on my computer. But I have no other way or controlling it.
Kids, install and setup SSH from your phones so you can pkill non-terminating programs!
Oops I may have crashed my computer due to INTENSE ADVENTURE TIME ANALYSIS
LB: I did one of my undergraduate theses about time travel, and this is the best way to view it, for a variety of reasons.
Another time travel idea that I found very entertaining is the one from HPMOR (about time turners): you can never *change* the past, there is no separate past/present/future, reality is just computed in one swoop in a self-consistent way.
One of these weeks I'll blog about how I want others to treat my food allergies, because I think nearly everyone gets it wrong (imo the "right way" to talk about it is counterintuitive, not their fault).
Is that something others would be interested in reading?
I feel for y'all with food allergies/restrictions who have to spend time on this food-centric holiday with family/others who may not understand, care about, or prioritize your needs. Stay strong!

I'm so happy to be part of a community that values gopher as much as I do!
Me during the day: whoa mastodon moves fast, this is getting hard to keep up with
Me staying up instead of sleeping: yo mastodon where's my content give me cOnTeNt
I remember the first time I took an actual programming class (after programming as a hobby for several years). I was like "Wait... we have to code WITHOUT listening to music??? I don't know how to do that!"
Wondering if the prevalence of smart phones, spotify, and youtube is getting people into music at a younger age.
But it's not like music was that hard to find when I was growing up either... We had radio and boomboxes, even ipods and whatnot
I can't wrap my head around the fact that I didn't start listening to music until I was like 14.
What did I do for all those years???
I got a bunch second-hand at a local flea market a few weeks ago, most notably Garbage by Garbage.
